Mediterranean Style Beans and Vegetables (Crock Pot)

READY IN: 8hrs 15mins
Recipe by Vino Girl

I usually make tomato-ey, spicy bean recipes, but this one is different since even though it does have chili peppers in it, it really is mild (or maybe I just have a flame retardant tongue!). No tomatoes, either. This is modified just a little from a recipe from Crescent Dragonwagon's "The Passionate Vegetarian." She suggests serving it with bread & oil, or rice or barley, as a side dish, or with sour cream. I like it either hot or cold just as it is, or with rice or over pasta. I think any beans except maybe black would work, and I often use cooked dry beans instead of canned.

I like this recipe and enjoy it as written and cooked only a few hours on low. I also like to flavor leftovers with one or more of the following -bbq sauce or curry paste or cumin or salsa or worcestershire or citrus juice. I think it would be excellent cold with chopped tomatoes and fresh basil. Thanks for posting!
